Boathouse Row along the Schuylkill River in Philadelphia, PA Most of the rowing clubs and college rowing teams in the area are located along this quarter-mile stretch of the Schuylkill River, and during the warm months of the year, the crews can be seen practicing on the river. At nightfall, the buildings are outlined in lights, creating one of the best-known sights in Philadelphia.

This is the Norristown Transportation Center, where the SEPTA (former Reading Railroad) trains arrive on the lower level and the SEPTA (former Philadelphia & Western) high-speed trolley cars arrive on the upper level. There is also a bus station as part of the complex. The Pennsylvania Railroad's Schuylkill Branch also used to pass through here, but this is now a bicycle trail.

"Waterlily at Longwood Gardens

During the warm weather, waterlilies bloom in abundance at Longwood Gardens. The courtyard in which they are grown protects them from the wind, and the plants can be taken inside the conservatories in wintertime. The gardens are well worth the price of admission for anyone interested in flowers, trees or plants. There is even a restaurant on the premises for those who want to spend all day there.
